"Turquoise"

Ironic that my Ixia viridiflora bloomed right after I went to take pictures of the Puya berteroniana: there are very few flowers in this color range.

Seen here clashing rather dramatically with Dichelostemma ida-maiae. Admittedly, I bought mine more as a novelty than anything else. But I was surprised that -- at least in isolation -- the color is quite beautiful, even soothing. But there's no way I can keep it away from the reds.

That's definately the first flower I've seen in that color-very cool!

I have seen these in person in a conservatory somewhere. One of the strangest shades of flower along with Gladiolus papillio.
This is a most amusing blog, I must stop reading now. Love the Voltaire quote in the banner - classy!
